Mitchell to cut list post-July

Devin Mitchell, a 6-foot-3 guard out of Georgia, has a host of high major schools tracking him. He's looking to play through July and then plans to cut his list.

Devin Mitchell, who is known as one of the premier shooters in the 2014 class, is using the July evaluation periods to prove there's more to his game than just long-range jump shots.

"I'm more of a scorer," Mitchell told at the Peach State Classic. "I've really been trying to show them what I can do on the ball and off the ball and just show them some diversity."

Playing for the Southern Kings, Mitchell certainly impressed. He has a smooth, effortless shot with deep range. But he's certainly more skilled than given credit for. He handles the ball well, sees the floor and can makes shots off the dribble.

During Southern Kings games, the stands were filled with coaches watching Mitchell, a 6-foot-3 guard out of Suwanne (Ga.) Collins Hill.

Mitchell currently claims scholarship offers from Mississippi, Georgia, Tennessee, Memphis, UAB, Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, Alabama, Cincinnati, Xavier, LaSalle, Miami and Marquette.

"It's really starting to pick up a lot more now," Mitchell said. "My name is kind of out there with Cincinnati offering me and Alabama and Miami."

"Kansas has started calling," he added. "Indiana has started calling. Illinois started calling and some of the Big Ten schools. Purdue is still recruiting me. It's been going good."

Mitchell has already taken visits to Wake Forest, UAB, Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia.

"I want to visit Cincinnati and I'll probably go back to Tennessee," Mitchell said. "I'll probably go back to Alabama, Kansas State. If Indiana offers me I'll probably go there too."

Mitchell, a four-star prospect, said the next step in his recruitment is narrowing his list after the evaluation periods.

"I'm looking to make a top 10 by the end of July and then I think I'm going to commit so I can sign in the first period in November, but I don't know," Mitchell said.

"It's starting to pick up a lot so I might hold out a little bit," he added. "I don't really know. I'm just going to take to my family and coaches."

Mitchell and the Southern Kings will play in the Elite 32 Session I during the second July evaluation period.
